Scariest moment ever

At about 10:45 last night Sáin came out to the living room and said, “Mommy I feel low” and then collapsed. She was low and very shaky and drifting in and out of consciousness. By some lucky freak of nature she was able to drink juice and I was able to get blood sugar up without using glucagon. Sáin slept on the couch; I “slept” on the floor. (okay, I didn’t really sleep. Who could sleep after that? I watched really bad infomercials, talked frequently to the on call endo at Children's and checked her blood sugar every 30 minutes.) Sáin woke up this morning high (357) but I don’t care. She woke up this morning and that’s all that matters.

I know I should write more on this but I am exhausted and need to get back to work to pay for this disease.
